Aquatic plants and animals and the acidification of our oceans
This experiment was performed to ascertain the effect of aquatic plants on the acidity levels of our oceans. Carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere have been on the rise mainly due to the burning of fossil fuel and deforestation. The results of this experiment will ascertain whether aquatic plants help to reduce the acidification of our oceans, via the process of photosynthesis.
Do different colors of light affect plants differently?
My experimental purpose was to determine if the color of light affects the amount of oxygen created through the process of photosynthesis by elodea, a type of aquatic plant.
What side of a plant's leaf takes in atmospheric gases?
Ten (10) students say the top of the leaf takes in gases because when rain and watering cans water plants it comes from above and hits the top of the plant leaves first. Ten (10) say the bottom of the leaf takes in gases because after observing the leaves from each plant the bottom of the leaves were more veiny and the skin of the bottom leaves seemed thinner. The top of the plant leaf had a t
Prove increased starch increases the process of photosynthesis in the green plant.
To measure the amount of starch left in a leaf of a geranium plant under the following conditions; carbon dioxide increased, decreased and neither increased or decreased.
The effect of Different Light Wavelengths on Photosynthesis
Light energy is the key to photosynthesis. A relatively narrow portion or the visible light spectrum is most active in photosynthesis. By performing experiments that selectively filter out different wavelengths of light you can learn about which wavelengths are most active in driving photosynthesis.
What is photosynthesis and do plants need sunlight to photosynthesize?
Of all the organisms in the natural world, green plants are the only ones that manufacture their own food. This process is called photosynthesis and begins when light strikes the plant's leaves (both sunlight and artificial light can power this process). Cells in the plant's leaves, called chloroplasts, contain a green pigment called chlorophyll which interacts with sunlight to split the water
Effect of oil spills on aquatic plants
This science fair project was performed to find out how oil spills will affect aquatic plants. Testing was done using hydrilla plants in water with and without a layer of oil covering the surface.
Removing oil spills with Elodea
Can the Elodea save our environment? Do Elodea plants help solve oil spill problems? If so, it would be a very cost effective, convenient, and natural way of keeping our environment clean. This science fair project was performed to determine if the Elodea plant can be used to remove oil spills in water. The experiment was done with gasoline, engine oil, corn oil and kerosene.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) and global warming
This experiment was performed to ascertain the effect of carbon dioxide on environmental temperature. Industrialization has brought about deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels on an unprecedented scale and this has increased the emission of CO2 significantly. The results of this experiment will show how the increased level of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is contributing towards making
Elodea and Goldfish
This science fair project was performed to determine if an Elodea plant can grow faster when planted in aquariums occupied by goldfish. The experiment was done by growing Elodea in an aquarium with one, five and ten goldfish and also in a tank without any goldfish.
